Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)

While we’ve covered the best flat-pack sofas, sofas under $1,000, and sleeper sofas, here we’ve rounded up the best love seats, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.

Best-rated love seat

“This love seat is definitely worth the money. It’s a beautiful, beautiful piece of furniture,” writes one reviewer, describing it as “Absolutely comfortable, sturdy, and a good value.” Dozens of reviewers agree that it’s “beautiful and comfortable,” and many call out its fabric. One says it “really looks and feels like leather,” while another explains that it’s “very soft and looks more expensive than what I paid for it.” Several reviewers also appreciate how well-built and sturdy the love seat is, especially the cushions. Says this reviewer with five big dogs, “These love seats have held up like you would not believe. After a year I have put covers on them only because they are in my family room and the dogs think they belong to them. But one of my dogs thinks she is a mountain goat and sleeps on the back cushion. The seat cushions are still comfortable and sturdy, and the back cushions are great.”

Many reviewers with limited space gravitated toward Novogratz’s Leyla love seat, including this one who says that “this couch is perfect” for her “itty, bitty, apartment.” It’s also comfortable, “much more comfortable than every futon I’ve ever sat on,” says one reviewer. Customers also appreciate the adjustability of the love seat, like one who calls it “Brilliant! I love that both arms are adjustable. I can use it as a couch, a chaise lounge, and a bed for out of town guests.” Another reviewer use it as “a great gaming seat, study couch, and extra seating for kids during movies.” Says another, “I love that the sides adjust to four different levels of slant. I like to lie on it to read with one side laid flat and one side inclined.” One reviewer described it as “super modern-looking,” but most were impressed with its value relative to its price, like one who says, “Boy, does this thing pack a punch! So much bang for your buck. The quality is so much better than I expected for something at this price, even full price.” Another agrees, saying “I needed a futon that was inexpensive, looked good, and worked as a single bed. For the money, it is better than I expected.”

And now some micro-picks for every type of love seat you might be looking for.

Several reviewers note that, for the price, this love seat is a steal. “Our expectations going into our furniture search were not exceptionally high, but boy did this love seat deliver,” says one reviewer. Another reviewer loves how great it looks: “The color and the material is fabulous. I am a professional home stager and placed this in a high-end oceanfront condo to make the living room look bigger; the homeowner loved it. This is a very versatile piece.” But many reviewers also love how well it squeezes into small spaces. “I live in a small New York City apartment on a sixth floor walkup, so finding a couch that would fit the space and that I could also get up the stairs was HUGE,” one reviewer says, adding, “I was able to fit the 71-inch couch in my living area and it is big enough to fit 3 people.” As one reviewer concludes, “I am blown away by the quality of this couch. For around $400, you simply can’t go wrong with this.”

Best faux-leather love seat for small spaces

Reviewers love how compact this love seat is, with many agreeing that it’s great for small spaces. “This is the cutest settee and fits perfectly into the tiny space that I needed it for,” says one. “I would recommend this to anyone with a small space,” says another. Customers also rave about how nice it looks: “I am blown away with how beautiful this love sofa is,” says one. Another calls it “totally adorable,” adding that it “Looks fabulous, and several visitors have commented on how much they like it.” It’s also easy to assemble and lightweight, “so it’s easy to move for vacuuming,” notes another reviewer. Still, it’s sturdy: “I have now had this for two years and it still looks new. The cushion has not sagged or crushed,” another writes. As one customer puts it, “This loveseat is super adorable, comfy, very true to size, can easily sit two, and matches my decor flawlessly.”

“The number one plus is the easy assembly. I used zero tools to put this together,” writes one reviewer of this love seat. Another calls it, “Ridiculously easy to assemble.” And for the price, customers were also impressed with its quality and looks, with one saying that it’s “a steal for the price.” Another reviewer explains, “This thing is not too big, comfy for la
